Would you like to be a member of the school Council 2017-18?
During the first few weeks back, we will be looking for new members to make our school Council team.
A school Council is a group of children from our school who are elected (chosen), to represent the views of the children in our school and get things done.
Every class in years 1 & 2 will need to decide on a boy and a girl from their class.
The school Council helps to make our school the great place that it is to play, learn and grow. They help think of ways to make the school even better. Last year the school Council listened to the views of staff and students about looking after the environment and making sure that people put their rubbish in the bin. The school Council used their ICT skills to make some posters and thought carefully about where to put them to make them the most effective they can be.
The school Council also thinks about ways we can help our wider community. Last year, we decided to support the charity children in need and Red Nose Day. We thought of ways we could raise money and spread the important message of what our money would support.
We also had a fantastic pumpkin carving competition, we enjoy having lots of fun!
If if you think you would like to do this important role, why not speak to your class teacher or Miss Proctor.
School Council Meeting 06.01.17
At today's meeting we discussed some of the concerns that year 2 have about the amount of litter that is around the playground and on the path leading to school. We decided that it would be a good idea to make sure that we use our school value of respect and make sure that we are keeping our environment safe and clean for everyone. In the next coming weeks, we are going to be designing and making posters to spread the word about putting our litter in the bin.
We we also are currently thinking about ways that we can raise money for Red Nose Day. If any of the children have any ideas, please let the school council know!
We look forward to hearing your ideas.
Children In Need
The Svhool Council decided that we should raise money to help children where we live and around the world. We explored how some children needed some support to take part in activities, to help them to learn new things and some experiences if they were poorly. We decided to support the BBC children in need and the School Council decided to have a "wear something spotty" day.
Pumpkin Carving Competition
As school council, we have listened to ideas about what our school community would like to do. We have had a suggestion of a pumpkin carving competition! Over half term we would love you to carve out a pumpkin, in any design you like and bring it to school on Monday 31st October. Please make sure that your pumpkin has your name on it. Have lots of fun and we can't wait to see all your creative skills!
Welcome to the School Council...
